From University Innovation
Tanner works as a curriculum designer, facilitator, instructor, and mentor in the Go-To-Market Accelerator - an early-stage incubator that assists entrepreneurs in validating, modeling, and scaling their businesses. He creates value by embedding human-centered design into core curriculum; bringing real-world, experiential learning to workshops; and providing clients with opportunities to work across disciplines to create innovative solutions. He works with state-run organizations and local businesses to create mutually beneficial partnerships, programs, and events that provide opportunities for economic development in the state of Utah.
Tanner's greatest joy comes not from seeing companies succeed, but from seeing individuals rekindle their creative confidence. Although our society typically associates creativity with artists, sculptors, dancers, etc., Tanner believes that every individual is creative because of their unique experiences. Tanner believes that the greatest innovation occurs when you bring a diverse group of individuals together to solve a common problem.
